THE FAST-MOVING satire on the future was written by the cen-
tral committee. Over 15 original songs have been composed by Bar-
bara Gerholz and Louise Steele.
Virginia Campbell, chairman, in describing the production,
said, "Every year juniors brag that this year's JGP is the best one
ever produced, but this year we really mean it. The combined tal-
ents of the 260 coeds working on committees and in the cast, in
combination with an entirely new idea in campus musicals, can
not help but produce the best of entertainment."
Miss Campbell and her assistant, Pat Lewis, have intergrated all
parts of the production. The show is directed by Betty Jo Faulk and
Dorothy Fogel. Leading parts have been assigned to Jo Christensen,
Barbara Cress, Jo Henderson and Carol Tuer.

WAA President Heads College
Recreation, Athletics for Coeds
By BARBARA MOLYNEAUX
As president of the Women's
Athletic Association, Gwen Sper-
lich's biggest job is to coordinate
the specific interests of 20 indi-
vidual sport's clubs.
In 1893, women were first al-
lowed entrance into the University
but for eight years there existed
no organized program for their'
athletic activities, except a class
* * *
IN 1905 WAA was formed to as-
sume the responsibility of start-
ing and integrating many of the
sports that are such a big part of
college life. Today they are spon-
soring a comprehensive recrea-
tional program for all women of
The Student-Faculty Hour will
honor the Psychology Department.
at 4 p.m. today in the Grand Rap-
ids Room of the League.
Hostesses this week will be from
Alpha Xi Delta. They will be on
hand to introduce faculty and stu-
dents, to serve cokes and potato
chips and to offer facilities for a
bridge game or ping pong.
When WAA first began, it
consisted of seven members and
controlled one sport; basketball!
today it has a board of 32 wom-
en, controls 20 sports clubs, and
heads Michigras and Lantern
Night plus many varying activi-
ties that arise during the year.
As president, Miss Sperlich must
be acquainted with each member'sI
duties in order to help them plan
their work for the year.
SECONDLY, she works closely
with Miss Marie Hartwig, WAA
Faculty Advisor in order to pro-
vide instruction in the various
sports and to maintain a high level
of athletic participation.
It is the president, too, who
is Mistress of Lantern Night.
She acts as an ex-officio mem-
ber of all committees for Michi-
gras and other projects spon-
sored by WAA.
Asma sophomore Miss Sperlich
was manager of the Bowling Club
and her junior year she was In-
tramural Manager on the WAA1
It is required that in addition to
being a senior, one year be served
on the board before taking over
the president's position.
This year, WAA's biggest addi-
tion to their list of "duties per-
formed," is Friday's Sports Night
at the IM building which has
gained such a prominent place in
everyone's date calendar.
